As early as 2013, Walmart and Facebook announced their plans to begin using facial software on everyone.

According to a article, Walmart tested a facial recognition system that scanned the face of everyone entering several of its stores this year. The system would identify people of interest and alert security but it proved too costly.

Chris Calabrese at the Center for Democracy and Technology warns…

“Anywhere that has a camera could end up employing face recognition technology.”

Walmart like many retailers uses Bosch’s Dinion and Flexidome Camera Systems:

>”The Dinion and Flexidome HDR cameras use state-of the-art Intelligent Video Analysis software (IVA) to detect objects of importance and track their movements. To take further advantage of IVA, a special mode called intelligent auto exposure (iAE) can be enabled in the camera. When this is used, the camera detects important objects such as faces, people and vehicles and then dynamically re-tunes its imaging settings to ensure the most useful, highly detailed image is captured.”

Bosch’s surveillance cameras track customers from the moment they enter the parking lot and throughout the store:
